In April 2015, a team from the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) Bureau of Planning Services established a framework for Healthy Iowans, a statewide health assessment leading to a state health improvement plan. A series of meetings involved the IDPH director, executive management, and the Iowa State Board of Health in discussing and approving the framework. Following these meetings, the team began to take steps with IDPH advisory committees, external stakeholders, local public health agencies, and concerned Iowans. Overall, more than 20,000 individuals participated in the state health assessment, either as part of a local process or in statewide activities. The assessment was inclusive so there would be broad ownership of the results and a commitment to action to make improvements in Iowans’ health.
